Betting tips – Arsenal vs Sunderland – 16.05.2017
Emirates Stadium will offer us a very interesting duel today, with Arsenal hosting Sunderland. The first whistle of the game will be heard at 19:45, local time.
Arsenal have shown a very good form lately, coming here after three consecutive victories in Premier League. They still have a chance to finish in Top 4, but it’s not going to be easy, since they need a wrong step made by Liverpool or Manchester City. The Gunners have a 72-43 goal difference, with the third best attack in the league. More than that, they have the weakest defense in Top 7 right now.
Sunderland are already relegated and there is no real motivation for them ahead of this clash. Borini & Co have won only 24 points in 36 rounds, scoring only 28 times. Only Middlesbrough (27 goals scored) have a weaker attack than Sunderland right now. The Black Cats had no chance in the reverse fixture, losing 1-4 back in October.
Arsenal vs Sunderland probable lineups:
Arsenal (3-4-2-1): Cech – Holding, Mustafi, Monreal – Bellerin, Ramsey, Xhaka, Gibbs – Welbeck, Ozil – Giroud.
Sunderland (4-3-3): Pickford – Jones, Kone, O’shea, Manquillo – Ndong, Cattermole, Larsson – Borini, Defoe, Khazri.
Prediction: 1 at half time @ 1.40
Arsenal will certainly give their best today for three points and I expect them to have a good start and also to take the lead before half time.
